All men are not equal. Not in any way, shape, or form. All that we recognize is that we are all treated equally in the eyes of the law. Not in personal interactions. The govt need not be involved in racial, sexual or other discriminations in private workplaces.Well, the government is involved as they are with racial, sexual and other discriminations in the workplace. The very purpose of the Federal government is to make sure that its citizens rights are protected. It says, "All men are created equal." It doesn't say, "Unless you're the boss, then you can treat me like a piece of crap."
